Reviewer: Kodachrome - - September 29, 2010
Subject: Let's forget all about internment, shall we?
There can be little doubt that this Hollywood propaganda product was intended to put a smiley face on Japanese internment during WWII.

America’s use and promotion of negative racial sentiments against “Japs” and Krauts in her “WWII” war effort, stands in contrast to how a “war” is prosecuted today. Still, it is not a horrible flick as war movies go.

My favorite part is when the 442nd captures a small outpost. Upon surrender, the bewildered German officer asks “What kind of troops are these, Chinese?

President Harry Truman read the postscript. Hugh Beaumont of “Leave it to Beaver” fame, has a minor role as a priest.

I give this movie 4 stars because the film managed to keep my interest, and because this is my first review. No sense flinging poo about on my first review.

Subject: Shipping out to the pacific
that was the last line.
it was not the proper end.
the larger download said it was 62 percent complete.
the mp4 was the same ending at 100 percent
what a waste of time

Looking forward to seeing this, eventhough the message from FDR was abit of a joke. The message he give for the press back during WWII and congress; while thousands were in intermet
camps (one of them in Arizona).
